Hey Me,

Yeah its too bad for F9 but they usually make profitable decisions it seems. Maybe there is more demand for FL routes out of BMI than F9's routes, they went BMI to Omaha, neither of which are mega destinations. If FL flies BMI ATL that makes a little more sense as to why loads are higher for you. Good luck to FL and F9, Personally I'm an NJ employee and would like to see all of us discount carriers succeed & be profitable.
